Flooring company Tarkett hit by cyber-attack

French flooring company Tarkett has revealed that its operations have been disrupted by a cyber-attack that struck last week. In a press release published today (May 4), Tarkett said the attack “has affected part of its operations since April 29th” despite the company taking prompt remedial action. “In response, Tarkett immediately shut down its information technology systems and put in place the necessary preventive measures to protect its operations as well as the data of its employees, customers and partners,” the statement read. With commercial and production operations still “disrupted”, the Paris-based company said that “leading third-party IT experts and forensics” were helping the group “return operations to normal as soon as possible”.
